Why You Need a Home Office in Your Basement
Imagine how convenient it would be to have a home office in your basement. Whether you work full- or part-time from home, or just to have a space designated for your own bills and finances, a separate home office is a wonderful addition and it can be easily accomplished with Allen Keith's basement renovation services.
Most people simply set up their computer and desk in a corner of their bedroom. If you have an unfinished basement, you are missing a great opportunity to have a quiet and spacious home office.
With enhancements in technology and the willingness of many employers to allow some work to be done at home, the number of people who work from home continues to rise. A home office is essential for anyone attempting to work from home. A separate, yet still nearby area will let your family know you are near, but that it is time to work. A home office also allows for work to have it’s own “place” within your home.
When a work-at-home-parent has an upstairs office, they can get easily distracted by everything else going on in their household that day. If the 'office' is simply a corner of the living room or other space, children may not see it as a place that is off limits to them. The solution is a home office, where a working parent can have peace and quiet to complete his or her work.
The other advantage of having a designated home office space is the tax benefits. You can claim home office expenses if you have a separate and designated space to work. Many people who work from home don't claim these because the space they use is simply part of the house and not used exclusively for business. A home office in your basement can be set up solely for that purpose, thereby eliminating the need of trying to determine how much use is personal and how much use is business related.
Basement renovation also increases the value and salability of your home to potential buyers down the road. A finished basement is a great selling point. Contact Allen Keith today for a professional evaluation of your basement renovation project.
